A view of the lake at Lake Waccamaw State Park
Construction at the Dam   

There is still construction going on at the Dam. It is getting closer to the completion of the Walking bridge that goes over the Dam. I know we can not wait to be able to utilize the new bridge. We are in the process of clearing more of the area between the Dam and Campsite 4 on the Lakeshore Trail. So once the Walkway is complete everyone will be able to cross over and have access to the park. Unfortunetly Golf carts will not have access to the bridge, it will be for walking only, even bicycles will need to be walked accross the bridge.

Newest Campsite at Lake Waccamaw State Park

We have finally finished our newest campsite! Campsite 5 is the only one of it's kind at NC State Parks. The campsite is still relatively primitive, but it offers a permanent yurt-style tent on a 16' wide X 32' long platform. It has the same amenities as the other four campsites including a charcoal grill, fire ring, pit toilet nearby, and picnic table. There are two bed platforms inside the yurt-style tent.  Campers will need to supply their own mattresses or sleeping bags for the beds. The maximum capacity is six people.
